Statement Sunglasses: Tips for Wearing Them Right

Some seasons we get lucky and our accessories get to stand out at as a fashion statement itself instead of just blends and accents.  Spring 2013 – this is our season.  Previewing the Spring line, we’re thrilled to see that catchy aka statement sunglasses are the “in” look. As you start to shop for a new pair of  statement sunglasses, keep these tips in mind:

How to Style Statement Sunglasses

1. Bold

Extreme Cateye

Opt for a pair that breaks the norm, and check out the ones that have a sharp shape, catchy rims, or maybe a bit of flare at the edges. Get this look for less at Urban Outfitters, where we found an outstanding pair for $16. Culbrat Sunglasses:

2. Color

Emerald Trend - Glasses

Bright, fresh, and even candied-tone, go for ones that stand out instead of mute in. Love the hue? Get your own at Forever21 for $5.80! At that price, you can get a pair to match any outfit, every day of the week. Square Sunglasses (Peach):

3. Tone


Long gone are the days of matte and mute.  Combine colors and shades for a contrast that won’t bore. Like the two-tone look? My favorite wallet-friendly pair is from Vogue and can be found at Sunglasses Hut for $69.98:
